[ bleep ]. >> reporter: less than 24 hours after abc's sister network espn aired that video, rice was out, fired by rutgers. >> i have let so many people down. my players, my administration, rutgers university, the fans -- my family, who is sitting in -- in their house just huddled around because of the fact that their father was an embarrassment to them. >> reporter: the fact is that rutgers knew about rice's behavior and that tape months ago. they briefly suspended him and
2:30 am
sent him to anger management. but they didn't fire him until the tapes became public. >> what it says about college sports is it takes the media to police them. and to make sure they're clean. that is a very sad thought that these athletic directors and these coaches don't understand that they are leading young people. >> reporter: the university's athletic director also apologized, saying, "i was wrong. moving forward, i will work to regain the trust of the rutgers community." remember this is the same school that vowed to crack down on bullying in 2010 when a gay student committed suicide after being tormented by his roommate. today parents of the players say their trust has been betrayed. stacy williams' son austin johnson just finished his senior season on the team. >> i think i may have failed him because, if i had known the gravity of the situation, i think i would have more strongly counseled him to leave when he began to become uncomfortable.
2:31 am
>> reporter: so why didn't any of these students speak out? is that mother tells me that they were afraid of losing those scholarships if they complained. and they thought this was just part of the basketball culture to stand tough. gio benitez, abc news, new jersey. >> starts with mike rice. apparently a lot of other heads that may roll in this case. not only, like we mentioned in the intro, the president of the university, there are other members of the faculty that are also being called into question. >> the athletic director for sure, the president of the university sort of in the cross-hairs. again, more than a dozen faculty members in regard to the president, say that his handling of homophobic and misogynist abuse is inexcusable. we will see what happens. >> for now looks like the athletic director is safe. he did say he was wrong to try to rehabilitate rice instead of firing him initially when he should have. now he will try to regain the trust of rutgers university campus. >> all right. moving on.
